Hi Everyone,

***TO ANSWER ALL YOUR AVAILABILITY AND RATE QUESTIONS IN A FAST, ACCURATE & FRIENDLY MANNER, OUR PREFERENCE IS FOR YOU TO BEGIN BY SIMPLY SENDING US AN EMAIL (dandan66@aol.com) OR GIVING US A CALL (434-661-8600). BASIC ballpark RATES are listed at the bottom of this introduction section by clicking the "MORE DETAILS" button at the end of this paragraph. Also, you can go to the "RATES" page and click on the last section labeled "NOTES." Thanks!

I recently brought my family here to the new Cape Haze Resort and we had two of the best weeks of our life. We enjoyed it so much that I even got my wife's permission to go in on buying a unit here in this new and beautiful gated community. Whether you like to relax and take in all the natural surrounding beauty or are hyper and like to pack in the fun - you will not be disappointed! You are literally only minutes away from the 7 mile Island stretch of Boca Grande (Gasparilla Island) offering wonderful unspoiled beaches shared by homes of some very notable people who like to vacation here like President Bush Sr., Oprah, Martha Stewart and many others. Right down the road in the other direction from Cape Haze you have the quaint Englewood area beaches (Englewood Beach, Blind Pass Beach and Manasota Beach). These beaches offer incredible evening sunsets, shelling and fossil (sharks teeth,etc) hunting opportunities. One mile down the road you can ferry your car (about $55) or yourself/bike ($7) across the water to the secretive and exclusive Palm Island (unparalleled shelling opportunities here... take home some real beauties!). There are lots of areas nearby that are excellent for spotting Dolphin and Manatee - my son and I came within 10 feet of touching one of each while swimming at one of the Boca Grande Beaches. Boating and fishing is absolutely wonderful in this area... you can park your boat or trailer at Cape Haze Resort (just register it, but no fees) and then choose from many nearby places to drop your boat in the water (easy access to the Gulf).

If your timing is right visit the new Charlotte Sports Park where the Tampa Bay Rays Spring Training Camp is held (14 miles down the road). Or try you hand at fishing, Boca Grande is the Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World! About 2 miles down the road from Cape Haze Resort is the 'Placida Fishing Pier' (just beyond where you would turn for the Boca Grande Causeway)... here you can fish off an amazing pier that will surprise you with amazing wildlife above and below the water. And not to forget, I'm told you have 25 wonderful private and public golf courses in Sarasota county and about 12 located in Charlotte county.

We found this to be the perfect place - you are close to plenty (walk next door to a wonderful Italian restaurant) yet perfectly situated in nature between Don Pedro State Park on one side and a roughly 250 acre nature preserve on the other side. Bike, hike or walk the trails. You can even rent a golf cart and follow the seven mile paved bike trails of Boca Grande (beautiful scenery, unspoiled beaches, quaint shops/restaurants) or explore the exclusive Palm Island in the same manner. Relax on your private lanai that overlooks the lake or just doze off by the gorgeous pool while you try to decide if it was an Osprey or an Eagle that just flew over your head (that's what we did).

We looked at a lot of units in the area and found Cape Haze Resort to have the nicest and biggest pool in the area and the property to be loaded with great amenities. You'll love the state-of-the-art fitness center, the incredibly nice clubhouse (free high speed Wi-Fi access with a view of the pool while you work). Surrounding the amazing pool (heated when needed) you have a large hot-tub, tennis courts, basketball court, Volleyball sand court, horse-shoes and grilling out opportunities ... all this fun and more at your fingertips! You are even welcome to make use of our shuffleboard-membership in nearby Port Charlotte at no extra cost. This place is a great place and has plenty to offer everyone of every age. This is definitely the type of place where you will be looking forward to coming back year after year.

As to our elegant 3rd floor NON-SMOKING, 3 bedroom home, it is the most spacious of all the units offered (1272 sq. feet under Air/ not including the 120+ sq.ft lanai). The lanai overlooks the peaceful lake with its invigorating lighted-fountain and intriguing wildlife (not all the units overlook the lake at Cape Haze). The Master bedroom has its own private full bath w/ granite counter tops, king-size bed and a flat screen TV on the dresser (cable channels). Located right next to the second bathroom (also full size shower and tub) is the second bedroom with two twin beds. The third bedroom has a trundle bed that pulls out below where you can sleep a sixth person if need be... The comfortable Living Room has a fluffy couch that reclines on each end encouraging you to just fall asleep while watching the flat screen or listening to the sounds of nature coming from the lake below. The W/D in the home are front-loading for your convenience and enjoy the morning cups of coffee at the little breakfast cafe-table for two by the window (kitchen also has quality granite counter tops). The home has high speed Wi-Fi (wireless) internet access (sometimes off during summer months) allowing you the convenience of not having to run down to the Club House every time you need the internet. All your phone calls are free (local, long distance and to Canada). Also, for your convenience, the front door is equipped with a key-less entry lock so everyone in your party can come and go without having to hunt down the person with the key!

Thanks for checking us out and hopefully you will find us down-to-earth, fun and easy to deal with as it is our desire for you to have as much fun and relaxation as we ourselves have enjoyed here... Please feel free to click on the VIDEO tab above the photo at the top of the page for a little walk through tour.

Thanks for stopping by...

What makes this condo unique

NOTE TO PROSPECTS: It might be helpful to note the following general rules of thumb when looking to buy or rent at the Cape Haze Resort ... 1) The higher the home is up off the ground, the more desirable and potentially costly the unit will be (premium prices for third and fourth floors)... 2) A home that is overlooking the fountain-pond will rightfully be more desirable and potentially costly and ... 3) needless to say, the number of bedrooms or the more the square footage, the more desirable and potentially costly the home will be...

Felt just like home but only 1200 miles away.

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What else can I say. That was one of the best places my family and I have ever stayed in. It had absolutely everything you would need to live in a home from cookie sheets to cotton balls. It was super clean, comfortable, quiet, and very spacious. Everything is very close by as well. Shopping centers, restaurants, beaches, golf courses, fishing, and more. We will definitely be looking forward to staying there again. Thanks for everything Dan and Rebecca!!

Wonderful place to stay.....

  • 5 of 5

Just got back after a 2 week stay at Cape Haze Resort. The condo was exceptionally clean, very spacious and well equipped. It was very comfortable and felt like home. It is located directly across from Don Pedro State Park, which gives you access to the Intracoastal Waterway which is great for fishing , boating and kayaking. Many things to do to keep busy in the area....something for everyone. There are excellent restaurants nearby or within a short drive. If golf is your thing...great place to be. The amenities at Cape Haze Resort are great. Dan , the owner was very easy to deal with and I'm sure we will stay with him again. I would recommend this unit for anyone looking to rent and explore the area.

Can't beat this condo and the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit in January 2015 and we have already booked it for 3months in 2016. It is very nicely furnished and has all the extras in the kitchen. It has as many dishes, cooking utensils, pots, pans, and silverware as I have at home. We enjoyed having the following provided by the owner: two beach chairs, two bikes, fishing rods, beach towels, two yoga mats.... and a storage closet for those large items and the bike we brought with us. The internet worked perfectly as my husband is still conducting business down here. The clubhouse is terrific. I take yoga two mornings a week and water aerobics two mornings a week ..all on the property. The weight room has top notch well maintained machines. The pool is large and heated. There is a byo party every Sunday evening and a cookout every Friday afternoon. We checked out all the rental properties in the area and could not find anything to compare. Cape Haze Resort is the place to be and This unit supplies everything you need...right down to plenty of light bulbs. They have thought of everything. Thanks Dan and Rebecca!

Owner's Response: Kirk and Judith... Thanks for the nice review! You mentioned "cookouts & byo parties" so allow me to clarify a bit for future residents. The resort sponsored fun (cookouts/parties) is done during the peak season months of the year only, but, anyone anytime can use the wonderful cookout facilities year round for a great time with family and friends. So glad you guys had a wonderful time... see you again soon! Dan&Rebecca Pelletier

Wonderful place for new Snowbirds.

  • 5 of 5

Without knowing anything about this area or location, my wife and I booked this unit for 2 months, January and February of 2014 and crossed our fingers.

What a wonderful surprise!!

We walked into a unit that was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. Upon closer observation as time went by, realized, that there wasn't anything we needed to make our stay better. The area is quite quiet and picturesque. There are many places to go and see as day trips and major shopping not that far away in Port Charlotte, Englewood and Venice.

Once we got involved with the active community that was here, which is a mix of vacationers and owners, we were able to meet an assortment of very friendly people. The Wednesday discounted golf in the Rotunda, organized by Arnie, an owner here, was a huge plus. The Sunday get-togethers ( BYO drinks ) at the lounge and Friday barbecues are welcoming events that make all here quite comfortable.

Groceries are a mile down the road, and several fine eateries are even closer.

Dan, our "landlord" was very easy to work with and quite attentive. We thank you for that.

We will be looking to come back in future years, after we try out Costa Rica next year.

This place will not disappoint ,if you are a looking for a snowbird lifestyle.

Thank you Dan.

Wonderful facility

  • 5 of 5

What a great place!!!! The condo is everything described and more. Tons of room for a family with 2 teens. Pool is huge and only steps from condo. Less than 5 minutes to Boca Grande Causeway. Only 20 minutes to Port Charlotte Mall. Just far enough off the beaten path to lose the crowds. The complex is clean and quiet. We spent the warmer days at the beach, the cooler ones at the heated pool. AWESOME Italian restaurant next door to complex. We would return without hesitation. Owner's were very responsive. They called us to verify that we were comfortable and things were as they should be. Thanks, Dan!!! Great place!!

Great intro to retirement!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a month and had a wonderful time. The unit was well furnished with all the supplies necessary to host family and friends. For those who enjoy golf, exercise, swimming and beaches this spot has everything that you need. The gym on site is well equipped, the pool allows for lengths, there is a nice walking path, many golf courses to choose from and beautiful beaches a close drive away.
